I remember hearing a professor share the difference between depression and other emotional states. She said that depression is similar to a deep, dark, hopeless pit. And sadly, many have and will experience this at some time in their lives. Many of the people who seek me out for treatment of depression are often experiencing a multitude of feelings which are difficult to express. When not expressed, the are held in and seem to 'grow', often overwhelming a person and leaving them uncertain of how to resolve it. I support my clients in finding ways to verbalize their emotions because I believe that this minimizes the power of the emotion. Shall we talk about the feeling of depression?

Depression can rob you of joy and the ability to see a positive future for yourself. Therapy can be a powerful tool to help you learn to understand your depression and build a life worth living. When working with depressed clients, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is one of the best therapies available for combatting depression. Using CBT, we will look at how your thoughts and reactions may be contributing to your depression and then find ways to challenge those thoughts and learn to live in a way that moves your life in a positive direction.

If you find yourself with more than just occasional "blues," depression may be making you feel out-of-touch with life. If you have depression, it is important to remember that you are not your diagnosis. Depression is not all of who you are. You are so much more. Sometimes you are caught in depression because of the ways that you think and because you have limiting beliefs. Working together, we can challenge what holds you back and help you move forward again, with depression in the rear view mirror.

Does this sound like you? Feeling sad; loss of interest in activities you normally enjoy; difficulty concentrating or making decisions; changes in sleep and appetite. These are all symptoms of depression. Sometimes depression is brought on by an event; other times it seemingly pops out of no where. Let me partner with you to give you hope and get you back on track. We will work together to explore your automatic thoughts, that is the thoughts that pop into your head to explain how the world works. Just know that even though you think something, it is not necessarily true. We see the world through our own unique filter which is formed through our experiences. Let's figure this out together.

We all experience times when we feel sad or depressed. When we feel this way it can be an important clue that something in our life needs to be changed. Some people have a biological condition which can cause depression. People may experience intense sadness. Others have a Bipolar Disorder and may feel high or even experience difficulty sleeping, anxiety and racing thoughts. We help you explore what was going on in your life when your depression started and unravel the reasons for your symptoms. In some cases medication may be needed. If necessary, we will collaborate with you and your doctor to help you to stabilize your mood, increase your confidence and work towards a happier future.

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Bad days come and go but they do not necessarily have to stay. When medication does not seem to be enough talking to someone can help. I have worked with many individuals that have struggle with depression and though the course of therapy have described a sensation of "fog" lifting. Depression has many origins, such as early childhood attachment or recent losses. It has been my experience that the most efficient way to come out of depression is to explore and understand one's symptoms.

Therapy Affordability Meter for Houston, TX

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Houston, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Houston may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Houston public health department.
